B&W to design boiler for waste-to-energy power plant in China

B&W Volund 300

Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises' Denmark-based unit, Babcock & Wilcox Vølund A/S, won a contract for nearly $40 million to design a waste-to-energy boiler for Shenzhen Energy Environmental Engineering Co. Ltd. in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China.

When complete, the plant will provide a waste management solution for the region while generating renewable energy. Fueled by up to 5,600 tons of municipal waste a day, the plant will be the largest waste-to-energy facility in the world.

B&W Vølund will supply equipment, including a DynaGrate combustion grate system, hydraulics, burners and other boiler components for the 168 MW power plant. B&W Vølund will also provide construction advisors for the combined heat and power project.

“The demand for reliable and clean renewable energy is growing in China and throughout much of Asia,” said Paul Scavuzzo, senior vice president, B&W Renewable. “We thank Shenzhen Energy for choosing B&W Vølund to provide state-of-the art technology for this plant.”

The circular Shenzhen plant will be built with sustainability in mind and will incorporate rooftop solar panels, a visitor education center and an observation platform into its architectural design. It also represents the first time B&W Vølund has deployed its advanced DynaGrate technology in China.

The plant is scheduled to begin commercial operation in mid-2019.
